SDK based on Intellij platform only

Answered

Hi,

While I know the IntelliJ Platform is dedicated to providing developer tools, I just wonder is it possible to create a fundamental SDK, based on the bare platform only, with no plugins attached. What I have in mind is the idea of creating an RCP application based on the platform. Is it even possible?

If you want to build a "clean" IDE with (almost) no bundled plugins by yourself, that's possible. Some pointers are available in https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IJSDK-105.

But please bear in mind that it's definitely not meant to be used as a generic application framework like Eclipse RCP and others.
